On Saturday, I let my four 9-10 week old chickens out for the first time. Or rather, I tried to let them out for the first time. They'd take turns peeking out the door and roosting on the shavings-saver board, but it took over three hours for the first pullet (Sunflower, my BO, the one I have always thought of as the least brave!) to cautiously make her way out into the run. She seemed so lonely and unsure all by herself that I finally tossed the other three out despite their rather vocal protestations. Sunday, it took them well over an hour to come out, but come out they finally did. Monday it took about 20 minutes. Yesterday it took less than a minute. And finally this morning, the second I opened their door I had to get the heck out of the way before I was run down by a mad mob of chickens intent on getting out in the sun as fast as possible!
